S.B. Will - hire the best

A versatile floating venue offering some very special events and experiences to discerning types looking to hire a different kind of boat, for a different kind of event.

Up to 50 guests

History afloat

Bespoke Events

Thames Sailing Barge Will simply doesn’t offer an ‘ordinary’ Thames Cruise. If you hire SB Will for even our simplest charter, we will literally stop traffic in central London and command Tower Bridge to open up for us. And then there’s the Clay Shooting events, the sailing, the sunset BBQ cruises. Will is special, and every moment on board for our guests is designed to be special too. And don’t miss our FAQ section below. 


Just being on board is a special treat. But we've created extra special experiences too. Because sometimes, a cruise is not enough.


You'll be wowed by the boat and the activity, but your stomach needs to be happy too. We deliver great food, and then some.


Quality 'living and working' historic sailing ships are few and far between these days. Will is part floating museum, part event-space. Amazing.


Such a versatile space, with broad decks and a warm, beautiful saloon below deck too; Will is equally happy with small groups as with 50.
